Douglas Armstrong – Active Nations
“When I heard that someone had run 50 marathons I thought they must have been mad, when I met you I was wrong and what you said made a lot of sense, it was relevant to my employees and I am sure that everyone who attended will have taken a something away from the experience.”

Alistair Currie – Jog Scotland Manager
“Mark, I followed your adventure closely and was delighted when you agreed to speak at our annual Scottish Athletics seminar.

An excellent talk full of laughter and emotion, an experience not to forget.”
